Just added this game to my shop… take a look! My son loves looking at the animals and matching the heads with their tails.
My love for paper started when I was a kid, probably kindergarten age. I loved everything about an office and office supplies… especially the paper. I grew up in a farm town and strangely there was a big paper store a few miles from my house. My parents took me there all the time. You could buy paper by the pound and envelopes for pennies a piece. Back then they had so many great deals for a young girl with little money. I would buy stacks of colored paper and mix and match envelopes. I wrote a lot of letters back then, so having a big supply of pretty paper was a necessity. I have since moved away. The store has changed over the years and appeals to the masses and tends to be overcrowded. They’ve expanded their products, regardless, I can’t help but go there every time I go home, just to flip through the boxes of paper and envelopes. I always buy something, even if I don’t need it… dreaming of a future project.

Well, just as I suspected, I was off to a great start and then got sick (I am still sick) and busy with work and design projects. That said, my daily patterns were the first to take a back seat. I have still be working on them, just haven’t had time to post. Here is a pattern I made into a Valentines Day card or just a plain old love card.
This is a hand drawn pattern that I brought into Illustrator. I used the Live Trace tool to create vector shapes that I could color.
